Yah what this guy said! hahahaMisterX said:It's called "engine braking". Drivers do if. Soccer Moms don't. Go ahead, be a driver. (Sounds like a VW commercial!)
Just remember, brake pads are cheaper than new rings. So be judicious.
Bad. You're using your clutch to speed up the engine. If you're going to do it, make sure you rev match. That means you should make the rpm of the engine match the rpm needed in the gear you're in at the speed you're at.verbal said:If I have to slow fast, I usually put it in a lower gear, then SLOWLY and GENTLY let out the clutch while braking. Slows me down fast. I'm not sure if this is good or bad, I've only been driving a stick for about 6-7 weeks. Is this bad?
If you are running about 3K RPMs in 3rd and want to downshift to 2nd when you approaching a light, you would want to perform the following steps:thechickencow said:
